The Locarno Film Festival is one that I usually don’t take much notice but there are 3 women who have films premiering in this years edition that could get me really excited. Alicia Vikander is at the top of that list. She has been blowing me away with her promo tour of Jason Bourne and now The Light Between The Oceans recently and the former is going to be screen at the Locarno Film Festival. For all but one of the Jason Bourne premieres Alicia has played the role of perfect brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton and I am hoping that when it comes to the films premiere at Locarno that Alicia steps away from LV. I would love to see Alicia give some sexy Spanish flair with this deep red Rodarte Fall 2016 RTW sleeveless rose embellished lace cocktail dress which features with an asymmetrical ruffled hem. Some simple black strappy sandals, a romantic updo, and a smokey eye will elevate this look to one that is absolutely perfect for Alicia and Locarno.
Clotilde Courau is another one of the lovely ladies that has a film premiering at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival with her latest film Heaven Will Wait. Clotilde is a fashionista at heart who can often be spotted front row at Elie Saab and Valentino Haute Couture fashion shows. For this stage I would love to see Clotilde wear this white sleeveless Valentin Resort 2017 floral printed midi dress which features an a-line silhouette. Sometimes Clotilde prefers classic and elegant and sometimes she loves to be edgy. I prefer her more classic, elegant, and glamorous looks over the edgier ones. I think that this dress evokes the classic glamour of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. Rounding this look out with cornflower blue or gold pumps, a chic bun, and a pink lip would ensure that Clotilde looks, wow. I have been loving Gemma Arterton on the red carpet and I think that she is going to slay her way through the fall festival season. Her first stop will be the Locarno Film Festival where she will premiere The Girl With All The Gifts. I have never seen seen full on gowns at the Locarno film festival, and since Gemma has a bunch of her films premiering at other film festivals I decided to go with this navy Christian Dior Cruise 2017 asymmetrical midi dress which features silk scarf detailing. Gemma was one of the lucky ones who got to experience the Dior Express to Blenheim Palace for the Christian Dior Cruise 2017 presentation and I expect that she will snatch up at least one look from the show to wear over the course of the fall festival season. This dress would be complimented perfectly with a pair of gold pumps, a bob of loose curls, and bronzed makeup.
The 2016 Locarno Film Festival runs from August 3, 2016 to August 13, 2016.
